A.W Banfield, who lived among the Nupe Tribe, wrote this book in 1905 in order to give the people of America an insight of that part of the great West Coast of Africa, known as Nigeria, and especially Northern Nigeria, which is Great Britain's latest Protectorate. He also hoped it would aid the missionaries who came down to West Africa to convert the natives.
